Early Voting Surging in Boone County and Statewide

More than 16,000 people have already voted absentee or by mail in Boone County. That’s more than 285% higher than the total absentee vote in 2016.

In fact, Boone County is quickly approaching 20% of the total 2016 vote of 85,012.

That total is running slightly ahead of the national trend, which, as of mid-October, showed the country’s early voting reaching 16% of all votes cast in 2016.
